We can add raising taxes on middle class families to the list of President Obama’s broken promises. Repealing ObamaCare and all of its tax increases is a big reason November’s election is so important to getting our country back on the right track.
Here’s some research illustrating part of what’s keeping our economy down. The first chart below shows there’s been a 25% increase since 2007 in the number of federal employees involved in regulatory activities. We need to be removing wasteful red-tape, not creating more of it.
Another troubling sign President Obama’s policies aren’t creating the job opportunities we need. It’s time to stop threatening job creators with tax hikes and put an end to job-killing regulations.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The college class of 2012 is in for a rude welcome to the world of work.
Today the U.S. Supreme Court is considering whether or not the individual mandate in ObamaCare is constitutional. I don’t believe it is, which is one of many reasons I voted against ObamaCare. If the Supreme Court doesn’t strike down this provision, our only option is to elect a Republican President and Congress that will repeal and replace ObamaCare. Below is a summary of what is at stake.
President Obama’s crony-capitalism keeps costing American taxpayers as this Wall Street Journal editorial spells out. The millions spent on the likes of Solyndra and Ener1 will have created NO sustainable jobs. Meanwhile, at NO cost to taxpayers we could build the Keystone XL pipeline, creating thousands of sustainable jobs.
You can’t blame local leaders in Temecula for feeling betrayed by Gov. Brown and Democrats in Sacramento, who robbed them of a tool to ensure local jobs went to legal workers. I wrote the law that created E-Verify so businesses would have a simple and free way to make sure the workers they hired were legally here. I guess Sacramento Democrats are opposed to common-sense solutions.
Ken Calvert was just named a Taxpayer Hero by the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW). According to the CCAGW, this is a testament to Ken’s “willingness to stand up for American taxpayers.” The designation is based on a number of significant votes identified by the CCAGW during the second session of the 111th Congress.
As this article makes clear, one of the keys to bringing back jobs to our region and country is putting an end to the job-killing regulations that make it tougher to do business here.
